FCA classified information

Guidance for external recipients handling FCA classified information

We operate an information classification and handling scheme which covers four distinct categories of information: Unclassified, FCA Restricted, FCA Controlled Distribution and FCA Highly Sensitive Information.

Where you have received any FCA material marked unrestricted there are no limitations on the use, storage or redistribution.

Where you have received information which is marked FCA Restricted, FCA Controlled Distribution or FCA Highly Sensitive Information you must not redistribute this information without the explicit authority of the FCA, it must be stored in a secure manner which restricts unauthorised or inappropriate access and it must be destroyed / deleted when it is no longer required.
